2013 Sole of the City 10K

My good friend Katie & I at the start of the race
In the wake of the bombing of the Boston Marathon, many of us runners were wondering what we could do to help those directly affected. Some of us prayed, others of us donated money, and some of us even just laced up our good ole running shoes and went for a run.

The Sole of the City 10K was about two weeks after the bombings up in Boston, so obviously security was a little tighter. It was pretty much the same course as years past, and I did set a personal record for a 10K in this race. Woohoo! Of course I enjoyed the free beer afterwards! The sandwiches weren't as good as they were last year, but I love the premium - so comfy and can be worn everywhere!

Finished:  884/2770 Time: 56:26.3
